Hi, I'm trying to associate the .epub extension with an installed program (an ebook reader, Icecream). I do this in multiple ways: right clicking on the file and choosing "Open with"/Use this app for all epub files" and then choosing the program from the list, and by going to Control Panel/Default Programs/Set Associations but after I associate .epub with Icecream it still shows "Current Default Not Selected". Any idea how to fix this? Thanks

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations and try [FONT=&quot]to change it there.
[/FONT]
OR
[FONT=&quot]Open the registry and navigate to the following key:[/FONT][FONT=&quot][FONT=&quot]HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts[/FONT][/FONT][FONT=&quot]Here you have to look for your extension (epub) under a key called “UserChoice”.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]What this registry key does, is if you change the Default file extension, Windows OS creates this key and adds the value there.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]On the Right-hand side you’ll see string value “[/FONT]Progid[FONT=&quot]” and under that value, you’ll see the current program that is associated with it. Try to change that value.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you face further problems.[/FONT]
